    Trump Mocks Macron: "They Were Starting To Learn German In Paris Before The US Came

    Trump Mocks Macron: "They Were Starting To Learn German In Paris Before The US Came Along"



    President Trump clearly isn't ready to forgive the "French diss" served up over the weekend by President Emmanuel Macron.

    Update (8:50 am ET): The tweets appear to have stopped...for now, at least. Meanwhile, Macron's office has refused to comment on Trump's claims.

    • OFFICE OF FRENCH PRESIDENT MACRON SAYS IT REFUSES TO MAKE ANY COMMENT REGARDING TRUMP'S TWEETS CRITICISING FRANCE AND MACRON

    Update III (8:35 am ET): Without directly referencing the rumors, Trump has branded reports that he refused to appear at a cemetery for American soldiers because he didn't want to get his hair wet as "fake news." In the tweet, Trump insisted that he wanted the Secret Service to drive him to the speech instead of taking a helicopter, but they refused because of security concerns. He added that he gave a speech at the cemetery the next day in the pouring rain - something that was "little reported".
    By the way, when the helicopter couldn’t fly to the first cemetery in France because of almost zero visibility, I suggested driving. Secret Service said NO, too far from airport & big Paris shutdown. Speech next day at American Cemetary in pouring rain! Little reported-Fake News!

    Update II (8:20 am ET): Trump's rampage against Macron continues. The president slammed his French counterpart for his low approval rating, as well as France's high unemployment. Furthermore, in response to Macron's "nationalist" snub, Trump pointed out that "there is no more nationalist country" than France...


    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

    The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26%, and an unemployment rate of almost 10%. He was just trying to get onto another subject. By the way, there is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!........

    Update (8:10 am ET): Trump's rage against Macron continues, but this time, the topic is slightly more serious. What could be more serious than questioning the foundation of Post-WWII military alliances, you might ask? The answer is simple - trade!
    Trump conceded that while France makes "very good wine" (an interesting claim from Trump, who doesn't drink), the country "makes it hard for the US to sell its wine into France, and charges very big tariffs". Meanwhile "The US makes it easy for French wines and charges small tariffs."
    "Not Fair, must change!"

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

    On Trade, France makes excellent wine, but so does the U.S. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the U.S. makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!

    We now await Trump's order of an investigation into the national security implications of imported French wine.

    President Trump isn't ready to forgive the "French diss" served up over the weekend by President Emmanuel Macron.

    During a ceremony honoring the 100th anniversary of World War I at the Arc de Triomphe on Sunday, French President Emmanuel Macron insulted Trump to his face by launching into a screed about the dangers of toxic "nationalism" and subtly accusing the US of abandoning its "moral values".
    This did not sit well with the US president, who was already facing criticism over his decision to show up late to a ceremony honoring the war dead (the administration blamed it on security concerns though it's widely suspected that Trump didn't want to get his hair wet), and Trump has let his displeasure be known in a series of tweets ridiculing Macron's suggestion that Europe build its own army, saying that France and other European members of NATO would be better served by paying their fair share for NATO while daring them to leave and pay for their own protection.
    And in his most abrasive tweet yet mocking the increasingly unpopular Macron's imperial ambitions (no, really), Trump pointed out that, historically speaking, Europe has been its own worst enemy, and that while Macron wants to defend the Continent from the US, China and Russia, "it was Germany in WWI & WWII," adding that "they were starting to learn German in Paris before the US came along. Pay for NATO or not!"

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

    Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two - How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!

    Of course, Macron isn't the only French official calling for the creation of a "European army". The country's finance minister advocated for the creation of a Continental army during an interview with Germany's Handelsblatt - a comment that was derided by the paper's editors, who pointed out that Germans "weren't very supportive" of the idea. One wonders why...

    Macron is a Moron. Trump flipped him the dismissal he deserves. The French are the most nationalistic of all people, former imperialists, yes, oh yes, but they've given up on most of that, however no one thinks more highly of themselves or their great culture and country than the French, and rightly so. They have a beautiful culture and one they should cherish and protect. Why would they not?! Also, the French people, despite Macron's attempt to insult Americans, know they owe the American people a great debt and the French have always known this, just as the American people owe the French a great debt for helping US with our Revolution and new country back in the day. No stupid leader like Macron can destroy that, no matter how hard he tries.

    Napoleon Reborn: We Need A "European Empire" To Challenge US And China, French Minister Says



    "We have talked about it for a long time. Now it’s time for decisions."

    As increasingly unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron's calls for creating a "Real European Army" have been met with ridicule from President Trump, who has insisted that Macron should first try meeting France's NATO commitments...

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

    President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russia. Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly!

    ...Another senior French official upped the aggressive rhetoric in an interview published on Monday, saying that Europe shouldn’t be afraid of using its power to become "a peaceful empire" to help it stand up to China and the US. French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire made the comments in an interview with Germay's Handelsblatt, which noted that Germany remains largely opposed to such a Continent-wide military alliance.




    To be sure, Le Maire insisted that "I am using this phrase because, in tomorrow’s world, it’s going to be all about power...technological power, economic, financial, monetary, cultural power - all will be decisive. Europe cannot be shy any longer about using its power."
    Le Maire also hinted that there will be "decisions made" about a Continent-wide fighting force during an upcoming EU summit.
    "We have talked about it for a long time. Now it’s time for decisions. And there will be decisions made on December 4, at the next meeting of the economy and finance ministers. I cannot imagine anything else."
    Because the people of Europe have had enough of the "babble from Brussels."
    "Everybody knows it takes guts to stand in the way of Donald Trump’s administration," Le Maire said. "The people of Europe have had enough of the babble from Brussels. They want to see action."
    In one recent example of European weakness, cited by Le Maire as justification for his imperial ambitions, Europe failed to stop the US from reimposing sanctions on Iran, and has instead opted for a passive alternative: The creation of a Special Purpose Vehicle to circumvent SWIFT and allow European companies to trade with Iran. While the workaround will suffice - for now - the broader problem is that Europe can't allow the US to decide with whom it can and cannot trade.
    Of course, it's difficult to talk about the creation of a French empire without thinking about Napoleon, the 18th century tyrant who seized power and fought a bloody continent-wide war to spread his "revolutionary principles" across Europe.
    Given the timing of the interview, we wonder if Le Maire was aware that Sunday was the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War I, a horrific, bloody conflict that left some 16 million soldiers dead and ripped apart the continent. If nothing else, this anniversary certainly lent his remarks a hint of irony.

    We pay the most costs for NATO.

    Send them to Central America now to round up the gangs and cartels, put them in prison or execute them!

    They are domestic terrorists! These vermin need to be put down.

    NATO should be protecting US against this invasion and get down there now!

    Send these illegal aliens BACK. Violence and "fear" removed.

    Go home and build America on your soil and get on birth control.

    Mexico does NOT want these people either!

    GET THOSE NATO TROOPS DOWN THERE AND DO THE JOB!
